Kickstart the summer with Afterhills: more than 150 artists (18 trance), a ton of good music and a field full of dreamers.

Well, this it is. Afterhills is just around the corner. Only a couple of days till we kickstart this summer with 4 amazing days full of good music and beautiful people. Dreamers. 'Cuz this is the focus. Daydreaming of something perfect, night dreaming of goosebumps. They just announced the full line up and it is insane.

From the trance point of view we have a pretty interesting list and I want to see all the names:

1. Vini Vici (I really like the sets I enjoyed till now, looking forward for a new one)

2. David Gravell (I am a huge fan of him, not matter if he is on the right side of trance music or not, as some would say. I am in love with some of his reworks and I am sure I will enjoy his set 110%)

3. Blastoyz (Crazy craziness since I first heard of him. Really really good with what is he doing)

4. Aly & Fila (You cannot say trance without saying Aly & Fila too)

5. Sander Van Doorn (Happy he got back to trance music with his Purple Haze name and looking forward to see what he has prepared for Afterhills)

6. KhoMa (Never seen him playing. Want to experience the end of a great day with him behind the decks)

7. Paul Van Dyk (Paul is my first music crush, and nothing can stay between me and him when he is playing at an event I am attending)

8. Cosmic Gate (Music crush! Music crush alert! )

9. Ben Nicky (I've seen a lot of comments regarding his sets lately, I want to see it for myself too)

10. Bogdan Vix (Pillar fo the Romanian Trance Community. Do I have to say more?)

11. Above & Beyond (They had one hell of a set at Timeshift last year, looking forward for the magic again)

12. Andrew Rayel (I have a lot of good memories from his sets, looking forward to see what else he is doing right now)

13. George Andreas (This little one, the youngest of the Romanian Trance Family's DJ is doing a great job behind the decks)

14. Exolight (One of the hottest names in the trance industry right now)

15. Nikolauss (My forever music crush. My forever life crush. I know a little bit of how is set is going on, looking forward to hear it live!)

16. Suncatcher (Great music man. Amazing DJ and trance producer. )

17. Sundancer (Friend. Never disappoints behind the decks)

17. Starpicker (Friend. Wine buddy. Music buddy. I am sure I will get to hear a lot of pure music in his set!)

I want to see them all. But I need to find out how cloning works first. Because the timetable was announced, and a lot of trance acts are happening in the same time between the Mainstage and The Shed stage. See the rest of the timetable here: facebook.com/afterhillsfestival/posts/2043181182604702 .

I am not sure what am I going to do, I am not sure who I will end up to see, but I am sure I will have the time of my life at Afterhills. Because the team is great, the event is great and the people are awesome. The music will perfectly complete the vibe. The friends will be there. Happiness will happen there.

Looking forward to see old friends, to meet new people and enjoy 4 full days of complete madness. See you there!

5+ reasons I am not missing Paul Van Dyk - From Then On @Kristal Club, Bucharest

This is getting closer and closer with each day. I cannot belive there are only 2 weeks till I go to Bucharest to experience what sounds like an amazing event. ^_^ I have no doubts I will enjoy every minute of it and I cannot wait to be there.

Beside me beeing really excited to be there, I also have some specific reason of why I chose to go and why I am expecting nothing but greatness from it:

1. Paul Van Dyk. The trance god himself is coming back to Romania. Even tough I never saw him playing in Romania before, but in other countries, I cannot wait to experience his work once again. He is an amazing DJ and his live sets are to die for. Also, he is one of my trance crushes, so no other words needed.

2. Jordan Suckley. This man is an amazing artist and a true show-man. If you are not following his journeys on his Social Media accounts, then you're losing something great! His scratches, his playings with the decks are great and I cannot wait to experience those live.  I always like when a DJ is more than a DJ behind the decks and when there is something extra added to the performance.

3. Bogdan Vix. It's been a hard year for him, for the trance community and for the Romanian Trance scene. He got through all of what happened with all the goods and the bads and he seems to be doing a lot of great music lately and getting a lot of support. (3uphoria just got released. Take a listen and grab your copy. It will definitely worth it.) I am glad he does this last trance event for us for this 2017 and I hope he will not stop here. 2018 already sounds promising. I heard some rummors. ;)

4. Alex M.O.R.P.H. - I first saw him at Luminosity and he had a really good set. I want to repeat that experience. Plus, there are some of his tracks that I will never forget: An Angel's Love (w Sylvia Tosun), The Reason (w Natalie Gioia) and others that make me his forever fan.

5. A new TRANCE gathering. I am always saying trance is connecting good people and that the trance family is something really good for the world. I cannot wait to see some dearly missed faces and to reconnect. It has been a while since we last saw each other and nothign compares with a good old get around face to face (not just online) with all the memories and plans for future getaways.

New trip to trance heaven. Amazing music to celebrate again and again. This reason doesn't need a number. It is the first, the second, the third, the forever reason for every event I chose to go to. I love this music so much. It is a huge part of my life and I cannot imagine what I'd do if it weren't for TRANCE music and all its feelings.

Do you think it this enough to let people not miss this event? Do you have more thoughts? Just let me know below! Trance on!


December 1st. Romania is in for a proper trance celebration!

Ohhh yes! Yes yes yes! Million times yes! That is what I was saying on the official event when I saw the announcement: Paul Van Dyk if coming back to Romania with his celebration party for his last album: From Then On.

After missing him at Electric Castle, I literally hated myself for not working a little bit more to make that happen. Even tough I saw Paul last year at Luminosity, there is nothing compared to him on the stage smiling and giving you the best time of your life through his music. Soooo, when I saw the announcement I got really really excited and booked my tickets right away.

Considering December 1st is also the National Day (of course work holiday too :D), this is great news! The whole Romanian community will celebrate in style with some really hot names from the trance scene: Paul Van Dyk, Jordan Suckley, Alex M.O.R.P.H. and our own Bogdan Vix. Needless to say these are all great music people and amazing DJs. Saw all of them before on the stage, and they simply know how to please a crowd.

The event will take place at Kristal Club, in Bucharest and will open its doors starting 10pm. Early bird tickets are already on sale for the price of 100 Ron (around 22 euros). You can grab yours here.

The hosts, INPUT, are brand new in the scene, but I really hope they will continue. I know they have support from TrancEnDance, so there if definitely some legacy. Beside taking care of an amazing line up and cool location, they also announced that the lights, visuals, the show will be provided by one of the best people in Romania - Arena Events. These guys were behind some nice festivals here, like Untold, Afterhills, Electric Castle, Neversea, so I am expecting greatness!

No more words for me now. Since I am speachless with all these news. I'll just go and warm up for a month for this event! Hope you'll do the same! Trance on!

Also, don't forget to RSVP to the official Facebook event.

PS. Stay close! A full review of Paul's album is coming soon!
